High Quality Leigh Brand Router Bits for the RTJ400 Router Table Dovetail Jig

Router Bits for the RTJ400 Router Table Dovetail Jig

High Quality Bits
Leigh carbide-tipped router bits are among the best you can buy. Our carbide comes from Sandvik of Sweden, the world's leading carbide manufacturer. Each bit is honed with 600 grit diamond wheels for smooth, efficient routing. All shanks are 1-3/4" long to handle the thickness of the finger assembly. Leigh spiral bits are made in the USA by either Onsrud or Misenheimer. Leigh router bits are manufactured to ISO 9002 standards.

Shank Size
The RTJ400 is shipped with four 1/2" shank bits that provide unparalleled stiffness for faster feed rates and little or no chatter:
  • 1/2" 8° through dovetail bit for tails (80-500)
  • 1/2" straight bit for through dovetail pins (160)
  • 1/2" 14 dovetail bit for half-blind dovetails (120-500)
  • 3/8" straight bit for 3/8"and 3/4" box joints (143-500)


Optional Bits for the RTJ400
Below you will find a number of optional router bits to expand the RTJ400's capabilities, from smaller dovetails and box joints to different half-blind depths of cut. Save money by combining all the optional bits with the RTJ400 Accessory Kit (ACRTJ) (see bottom of page), and have the correct bit at hand when you need it.

Please note that some dealers provide package deals where they sell the jig and accessory kit together for improved savings.


Note: Scroll down for the RTJ400 Bit Specifications chart.

* 8mm shank bits require an 8mm collet or a 1/2" collet
router with the 1/2" to 8mm collet reducer (172-8).
** Spiral upcut bits rout cleaner and faster, leaving a
smoother finish.


Dovetail & Box Joint Bit Selection
Use the cutting depth charts and the bit specifications chart below to choose your bit(s).
The RTJ400 uses 8° dovetail bits for the through tails and a straight bit for the through pins.
The RTJ400 routs the half-blind tail and pin board at the same time.
These bits are also used for rabbeted half-blind dovetails.
Note: 3/4" box joints use a 3/8" diameter bit.
Important: All router bits require a guide bushing. Click here for Guidebush Selection.
The dovetail bit's working depth (see column B in the chart below) must be equal to or slightly greater than the thickness of the pin board (drawer front). Always choose the smallest dovetail bit (column A) relative to the pin board thickness, to achieve classic hand-cut looking joinery. Use the matching straight bit and template guide bushing indicated in the chart.
